Buddhist Theocracy

“The tongue is like a sharp knife, it kills without drawing blood; words in the hands of
someone skilled can do more damage than a weapon in the hands of a warrior.”

Buddhist Theocracy is a authoritarian centre, culturally right ideology. Buddhism originated in India, based on the teachings, of Siddhartha Gautama, later known as Gautama Buddha. A Buddha is one who is said to be awake to the truth of life. The core of Buddhists beliefs are centered on the four noble truths, the noble eight-fold path and the five precepts.


Buddhist Theocracy is typically calm and "zen", often seen meditating. This can be shown by either the ball floating, generic chi symbols around the ball, or closed eyes. Artists are encouraged to use the standard Buddhism stereotypes.

Stylistic Notes

Make Buddhist Theocracy with a touch of Tibetan stereotypes in personality, and make him sound like the Dalai Lama.


Four noble Truths

The Buddha's first and most important teachings are the Four Noble Truths.

  1. Life often—in fact almost always—involves suffering.
  2. The reason for this suffering is that we want things to be a certain way.
  3. The way to cure suffering is to rise above this desire.
  4. The way to rise above desire is to follow the Noble Eight fold Path, practices which help us change our minds and understanding .

Noble Eight-fold Path

The Buddha told people to follow a special way of life called the Noble Eightfold Path if they want to understand the Four Noble Truths. These are:

  1. Appropriate views. Know and understand the Four Noble Truths
  2. Appropriate thought. Turn your mind away from the world and towards the Dharma
  3. Appropriate speech. Tell the truth, don't gossip, and don't talk badly about others
  4. Appropriate conduct. Don't commit evil acts, like killing, stealing, or living an unclean life
  5. Appropriate livelihood. Earn your money in a way that doesn't harm anyone
  6. Appropriate effort. Work to make your mind more good and less evil
  7. Appropriate mindfulness. Remember the Dharma and apply it all the time
  8. Appropriate meditation. Practice meditation as a way of understanding reality

Five precepts

Buddhists are encouraged to follow five precepts, or guidelines. The Buddha taught that killing, stealing, having sex in a harmful way, and lying are not signs of skill.

  1. I will not hurt a person or animal that is alive.
  2. I will not take something if it was not given to me.
  3. I will not engage in sexual misconduct.
  4. I will not lie or say things that hurt people.
  5. I will not take intoxicants, like alcohol or drugs, causing heedlessness


Jainist Theocracy

Flag of Jainist Theocracy

Jainist Theocracy is a school of thought that believes Jainism should be the main religion of a nation. Jainism is a Dharmic religion, believing the path to enlightenment is through nonviolence and reducing harm to living things (including plants and animals) as much as possible. Like Hindus and Buddhists, Jains believe in reincarnation. This cycle of birth, death, and rebirth is determined by one's karma.

According to Digambara Jains, there are seven tattvas: the sentient (jiva or living), the insentient (ajiva or non-living), the karmic influx to the soul (Āsrava, which is a mix of living and non-living), the bondage of karmic particles to the soul (Bandha), the stoppage of karmic particles (Saṃvara), the wiping away of past karmic particles (Nirjarā), and the liberation (Moksha). Śvētāmbaras add two further tattvas, namely good karma (Punya) and bad karma (Paapa).

  • Hindu Theocracy - Your theology is similar to mine, but your caste system is extremely problematic. Also, you helped kick me out of India.
  • Christian Theocracy - I do really appreciate Jesus' peacefulness. Aside from that, not really a fan.
  • Reactionaryism - Some say I am like you, but, well you make me look bad. Ignore Ashin Wirathu in Myanmar!

  • Manosphere - We both like patriarchy, but you're way too weird and are sometimes degenerate.
    • ahem
    • Well, not completely… The Eight Garudhammas are rules made by Buddha Himself, we will not abandon it just because you're "annoyed" by it. My progressive variants love you though.

Further Information



  1. Is Homosexuality Consistent with Buddhist Teachings? A: No, it is not. Buddhism teaches and expects its followers to observe a moral code of conduct. Because marriage is a union between a man and a woman as spouses, as recognized by the social system of the time. In the Yogacara, Volume 59 Cloud: “(Evil includes) All men and non-men, they should not do it if they belong to them. Except for the production line, all remaining points are named non-branches.…...If so, they all desire evil and commit crimes.” For lay Buddhists, the minimum requirement is to abide by the "Five Precepts", the third precept relates to sexual behavior. Homosexuality and same-sex sexual behavior violate the third precept (the precept against sexual immorality). Sexual behavior between same-sex is clearly prohibited in Buddhism. Homosexuals are strictly prohibited from becoming a monk, and those who have become monks are expelled. See "Four-Part Law"
